Hi bees–I need help deciding on a venue!!! I want a more ‘british’ style (we all eat together, followed by speeches, then dancing) reception rather than a ‘southern’ style (everyone eats, drinks, and dances throughout the night). A lot of the venues in louisiana are set up to accomodate southern style–they’re split into different rooms (plantation houses!). However, I want all my guests eating together at the same time, followed by speeches, so we would have to be in the same room. Which means I need a ballroom!
I’ve narrowed it down to 2 venues. They both have excellent reviews on food and are about the same price.
Venue 1 has a ballroom to accomodate my ‘British’ style reception. If the weather is bad, it won’t make too much of a difference to the reception. Looks: 8/10
Venue 2 is the most beautiful location! HOWEVER, the reception space is mostly outside; they do have a rain plan, but it would not be ideal at all. Looks:10/10
In summary, Venue 1 will work best with our needs, but Venue 2 is gorgous. Venue 1 needs a confirmation today because someone else is interested in our date!
What do y’all think??
